Cover your ears, because I am about to scream…………..
First let me tell you why I needed something to smile about….
For those of you who frequent or don’t frequent my blog, this and last week have been a downward roller coaster of my Grandfather’s health, along with my sanity 😉 Of course it has been hard on the entire Family, all 14 of his kids, but since I have been the only one that has been by his bedside since last Monday night, I get bragging rights for loosing my mind this week, lol. You guessed it, I have not left at all, OK, I did leave once for 1 1/2 hours while I went Downtown to The USO and took a quick shower. My other shower was 2 days ago, I got permission to leave for 1 hour. It was the first time I had seen my kids since last week.
Do I hate living on the couch? YES!
Am I exhausted from ONLY sleeping 3-4 hours out of every 24 hour period? YES!
Have I recovered from the first 45 hours of Trauma with absolutely no sleep or food for myself? NO!
Would I rather go home and leave my Grandfather alone in a cold lonely hospital? NO!!!!!!!
Not even a second thought about that last answer. This is the Man that has helped raise me since my Father died when I was 4 yrs old.
So needless to say, I was just waiting for ANY good news and boy did I get them!!!
The first form of good news was in an e-mail.
The best e-mail I had gotten in a long time. What it said as a whole is still a blur to me, (I credit the lifestyle I have led this last week, (giggles) ), with a blurry mind, I remember reading:
I was so happy and surprised, that I screamed with joy; and yes, I did wake up my grandpa because I read the e-mail while sitting on my couch, next to his bed 😉
What do you mean finalist for what?
Oh, I guess in my excitement I forgot to announce what I am a Finalist for right?
Only for the most awesome contest ever!!!…
I entered The Sony Style X10 Blogger Contest.
The entrants had to submit a 200 word post why they thought they would be a great blogger for Sony and Sony Ericsson.
I had even gotten the contest out of my mind, never kept a bookmark in my brain for the day the finalists were going to be announced.
WHOAH!!! was I surprised 😉
Two days after sending in the required documents, I received the FIRST prize at my door. Logically I wasn’t home to see it, but my husband got the package and called me. I gave him permission to open it and then I heard:
(let me tell you, that having my hubby be jealous of me is priceless!!!) 😉
Have you seen this baby?!? It is absolutely gorgeous!!!
In my humble opinion, it’s the best phone NOT out there (giggles)
Look at the beauty…
The pictures do it no justice, let me tell you. It’s not just the looks either, the features of this phone make me giggle like a little girl 😉
Not me… or so I thought!!! 😉
I told my Grandpa about the contest, the prizes and the Grand Prize, he smiled 😉 That was such a huge reaction for him.
I will definitely be blogging more about the details and other prizes, stay tuned, and if you think I deserve to be here, show me some love and help spread the word for me 😉
